Artful Thursdays DIY #4 Burlap Bobby Pins

Artful Thursdays Post #4
Burlap & Tulle Bobby Pins

After creating my niece's birthday party invites I had a bunch of small tulle scraps left over. I decided to create some cute little bobby pins! So first I gathered my materials:
Tulle Scraps
Burlap Scraps
2 Vintage Buttons
Hemp Twine
2 Bobby Pins
Staz On Jet Black Ink
Little Birdie Stamp (
Felt Scraps

1. Hand cut petals out of burlap. About 7-8 per flower.

2. Take cut petals and line them up side by side on a piece
of scrap paper.

3. Using Staz On Ink stamp with little birdie stamp on burlap
pieces. Let dry.
4. Cut 1/4" circle out of felt scraps.

5. Layer burlap petals & tulle scraps on felt circle.
Sew pieces securly onto felt circle.
6. Sew button onto center of the circle.
7. Adhere to bobby pin

I created a few of these and used some older button packaging and created little gifts for some of my friends.
